Kate Cusack

Crafted with a variety of zippers and thread, Kate Cusack creates jewelry that is bold, sophisticated, and playful. "I am inspired by the repetition of ordinary items. The pieces that I create are made from seemingly mundane materials and come to life when they are worn. The body is my canvas: I am fascinated by adornment, and excess."

Kate Cusack first studied at the Maryland institute college of art, then received a MFA in costume design from the Yale School of Drama. Cusack works as a freelance costume designer and jewelry artist from her studio in Brooklyn, New York.
